In the 1990s an ex-army mate started to collate a database of global terrorist incidents in his garage. I always thought he was smart but a bit odd and this confirmed it. Ten years later he sold the data company he founded for $13M. I wish I was that Odd! As I consume the news output from the world’s media companies (#CNN, #BBC, #CNBC etc) I realise how narrow the news we get is and how right my mate was. In fact on a daily basis there are lots of violent ‘incidents’ that affect the world economy and we hear nothing of them if you only consume the diatribe of the popular 24 hour news channels.
Concise Ballsy Thinking as the latest news rolls off the ticker tape. (Er, if you are under 20, Google it!)
